More likely is that this dome was swapped off another aircraft.

I can see if just the nose cone was freshly painted, however I noticed that thin line of paint outside the nose cone ( this is also apparent on other WN planes as well ), which leads me to think maybe they get repainted after awhile because they get dinged up all the time

It seems the "Canyon Blue" fades quite fast from sunlight (UV). I think somewhere one of our contributors indicated that WN was looking into reformulation or a different brand of paint to deal with the issue.

Or just drop the blue and go back to desert gold and orange! Much better livery IMO.
